Omega Railmaster 2803.52.37
Oisin - to clarify the date wheel on the new models, is same as dial colour(s) (not black). Eg Blue has blue date wheel.
Its a really excellent new design detail.
Lovely watch 'Hotel' and yes the white face can work (sporty) - I tend to have a preference for 'darker' dials just for visibility (reading time). The second picture the watch does look 'unbuckled'?
This is the 41/2mm and why I'm happy to try the 39mm model, as the End Case lugs should not over hang the wrist (imho). But each to there own, some like a close fit whilst others prefer a loose 'bracelet' freestyle fit. However, a down side to a loose fitting is generally the watch receives more incidental damage.
have the same watch! love it!
My friend has all kind of watches (collector) from rolex, hublot, ap everything you could think of from $100-$20 000, but the most watch he loves and wears all time is a omega seamaster.
nice, really cool pic too. camera or phone?
in a meeting today saw a guy with
i liked it a lot--much better in person than in the pics I've seen. the square case was powerful and actually kind of elegant.
also a milgauss sighting.
I'm a sucker for cushion cases, myself. But I hate the numerals. Soooo painfully retro-gimmicky.
I have no problem with the font used for the numerals, as the GO Senator Sixties range is a direct homage to the GDR-era Glashutte watches, and the font is a carry over from those pieces.
The Senator Sixties pieces I've found to look much better in pictures than in the steel, unfortunately.
I agree, numerals are great here.
I also agree on cushion cases - love them when they're nicely shaped and well finished
I considering the 60's square chrono with the black dial.
^ I like it as well.... elegant and very unique.
I have decided I think i'll go with the Cartier Santos 100 XL in silver. I tried on the JLC reverso in the store and it was so boring compare to the Cartier. I think santos will look perfect with my suits
